One of this country's most iconic symbols is the American Bison. But did you know that these magnificent beasts once roamed Powell's Valley, on the very land Wilderness Road State Park sits on? 

In this exciting, all new program, guests will learn about the natural characteristics of bison, as well as the important role they played in our nation's history. 

Follow our ranger on a short hike to the park's bison viewing area to meet and observe North America's largest land mammal.
